    It depends on the family members. I have many toxic members that make it worse. But my husband is my rock and he helps my anxiety more than anyone else.

      my husband doesnโ€™t think he helps, but he does. Just by being there and allowing me to talk through it! My father though, literally increases my anxiety.

    It depends. Certain family members are not helpful and on some days if the anxiety is really bad I just need to be alone. But usually sitting around with family members that do help and doing an stressor activity liking watching a movie definitely helps

    People increase my anxiety. My sister is one of three family members I love (the other two live five hours away) and she doesn't help my anxiety but she doesn't make it worse. She's not toxic or anything, just being around other people doesn't make my anxiety better.

    Everyone is different, I recharge around small groups of people that I like. So when Iโ€™m anxious I guess that carries over because hanging with (people I like to be around) usually eases my anxiety. But I know several people who default the opposite direction and seclude themselves. Not that one is better than the other just different.

    It depends, but it does help me as long as it is not a very large group. Larger groups tend to be more difficult for me, but smaller groups or one-on-one is better.
